Leeds based Harron Homes Yorkshire has appointed a new Managing Director to oversee operations in the region.
Tony Lee, from Auckley in Doncaster, joined Harron Homes Yorkshire in August, marking the apex of an accomplished career with several housing developers.
Having started out as a design engineer, Tony progressed through technical roles with respected developers. Most recently, he was Group Technical Director/Deputy Managing Director at Gleeson Homes, where as part of a senior management team, he helped progress it from a company developing 200 units per year into the 1500-strong housebuilder it is today.
As a result of his experience and outlook, Tony is focused heavily on business development.
“I’d like to grow Harron Homes to deliver up to 500 new homes per year,” he said. “We’ve got a great team here in Yorkshire and good safety standards too, so I’d like to use that to our advantage. I’ve not been in post long but I’ve already experienced just how enthusiastic the team is.”
He continued: “I was attracted to Harron Homes because of the similarities to Gleeson in terms of growth potential and opportunity, as well as the different challenge of offering a higher end, exclusive product. It’s something I’m looking forward to being involved with. I’ll be focusing on quality and customer experience too; I want to ensure that the business is growing in the right way.”
